Liquid creatine is creatine monohydrate in liquid form. It is a nutritional supplement product designed to provide energy for strenuous workouts. It is also used to help people gain muscle, increase their weight, and become stronger. For those reasons, it is popular in the world of bodybuilding and some sports, such as football, cycling, and basketball.

Before using liquid creatine it is important to read the instructions and determine the recommended dosage based on a person’s age and current weight. Each brand may have a different potency, and consequently, different dosages may be recommended. In addition, some brands recommend that users take creatine several times a day for several days in a row. After loading the person up with creatine, the dosage may drop so he or she can maintain the level of creatine in their body and thereby witness its effects, such as weight gain and muscle strength.

There are two main ways to take creatine: as a powder or as a liquid. Some people believe that the body absorbs the liquid version of creatine more effectively that the powdered version. As a result, the individual taking the liquid form of creatine may have fewer instances of bloating or other digestive issues that are common with creatine use. In addition, the liquid version of creatine is thought to be used directly by the body instead of attaching to food, which is how the powdered form works. Consequently, the powdered form of creatine typically requires people not to eat before using the product to maximize absorption; in the case of liquid creatine, food consumption won't have an effect on how how the supplement is absorbed into the body.

There are some conflicting reports regarding liquid creatine. For example, many people claim that it is unstable, and it breaks down much quicker than the powdered form. Consequently, those people believe that their body does not have the opportunity to absorb the creatine before it is broken down to an unusable product. Many of those people prefer to use the powdered form of creatine, exclusively.

Although researchers are slow to say that liquid creatine is unsafe, there have been some side effects reported. For example, some people have reported cramping and diarrhea. In addition, some people believe they have incurred heart problems and kidney damage from liquid creatine use. As a result, there are certain groups who may best refrain from using liquid creatine, such as children and people with pre-established heart or kidney issues. It is also important that liquid creatine users speak with a doctor or an athletic director before using the product to ensure it is both allowable and safe for use, based on an individual’s specific circumstances.
